Bicyclists can now enjoy the 5-ft-wide bike lanes in both directions and a reduced car speed limit of 25 MPH. Any concern about reduced parking has been alleviated, with only a few spots lost, and bicyclists are able to ride between the parking and traffic lanes.
Walkers, too, can see the difference along 70th. What we all know as conventional crosswalks have been replaced with engraved markings, making them easier to see and increasing the life of the markings.
Our bike-friendly West 70th has been realized, and we hope a lot more people use it to travel to the greater Southdale area or to the west side of Edina.
